Greetings & Salutations IoTHackDay Participants,

I am pleased to share some important details with you for this weekend.

  • FREE KITS:  First, we have an amazing offer for pre-hackathon prizes from our Platinum Sponsor, Digi International.  Digi International would like to help makers and hackers build their hardware, and understands that hardware is hard, so they have been generous enough to make a number of their kits available for free, prior to the hackathon. 
  • Fill out this free kit application by Thursday, checking off the kit you need to build your project, and Digi International will reach out with you to coordinate the kit pick up on Saturday.  Participation in the hackathon is not necessary to recieve a kit, but highly encouraged.


  • Second, this is the last week to get your teams formed and look to recruit additional members.  We ask that you have all of your team members register on our hackathon website, and get added to your team.
  • Need tips on recruiting for your team?  Check out this article written by a previous hacker, Ken Chang, on building the best team!


Lastly, there was an article in Tech.MN today gearing up in advance of the hackathon...exciting!  Looking forward to seeing you there...


If you have any questions about the hackathon, please post on the discussion forum.
